Members of Leeds Beckett Tennis cycled from Hull to Liverpool on April 5th and 6th raising nearly £1500 for Cancer Research UK. This totalled 142 miles of cycling over the two days.
Six players from the men's tennis team took on the challenge after completing an intense training programme in the weeks preceding the challenge.
Fuel For Sport was pleased to team up with the Tennis Club and provide high quality, nutritious food for their challenge, as well as the training.
Andrew Atkinson (one of the riders who took on the challenge) said –
“The Fuel for Sport meals really helped us throughout our bike ride. They are quick and easy to prepare. The meals are really tasty both hot and cold.
My particular favourite is the Mexican tuna pasta, the wholegrain pasta along with the flavoursome tuna and sauce are a really good combination. They only take 3 minutes in the microwave and if don't need to be kept in the fridge so they are really good for trips. As the meals are high in protein they are good for building back muscles after a tough day out on the bike.”
